USFS charges high fees for pressing red video button on your camera

Video: Pvt. Hugh McLaughlin (1835-1906)

A mini documentary I produced today. Was invited to record an honorary ceremony and headstone dedication for Pvt. Hugh McLaughlin (b.1835-d.1906).

In attendance were a granddaughter, great granddaughter, great great granddaughter and...

#3D photo of fishing demonstration, for kids

Spokane Valley Fest, Spokane Valley, WA – September 2012. Fishing demo (for kids) at the (fake) water fall and pond in Mirabeau Park.

They asked a lot of very good questions and I carefully explained how 3D photos work...

Civil War Battle Re-enactment video in 3D – Battle of Deep Creek

This is a ten minute teaser – perhaps a lot more to come! – of the Washington Civil War Association’s Civil War era history, camp and battles at Deep Creek Farms, Medical Lake/Spokane, WA. This video includes scenes from two battles combined into one, plus some camp scenes. I have about an hour and a half (times 2!) of 3D video to use in eventually putting more short videos together from...
